Sorry - We are not taking anyone during July 2019 - travelling.

We are small chaotic, busy French speaking family living in a Darwin suburb close to the City 30 minute walk, Botanical Gardens 10 minute walk and Mindil Beach 20 minute walk.

We live a busy life on a careful budget so we can travel more and work less.

We both work full time and are busy with activities after work too. We are looking for someone to help us with a bit of cleaning, decluttering and cooking. You need to be child friendly.

(Our child plays saxophone, recorder, dances Bollywood, does aerial circus, is learning coding, loves electronics and robotics and circuit geek stuff and reads a LOT) Is also learning Indonesian. Wants to learn Ukulele, guitar and improve her Math. She likes crafting, sewing and creating. If you have skills in these things then please let us know in your request.

Responsible, proactive people with initiative staying 3 days to 1 week.

Fold out couch to in our lounge room in a small chaotic flat. (We usually go to bed early so you should have the lounge room to yourself from 9:00pm). Breakfast and dinner, a couchbed to lay your head, laundry facilities and a local family to give you Darwin info.

In exchange we request 3hrs per day of help.
Basic cooking, cleaning, laundry, gardening, sorting, errands and general home maintenance. If you have music or performing art skills then that could be included in your work hours.

Help is usually requested mostly in the evenings 5:30pm-8:30pm on weekdays. Weekends during the day if possible. This will allow you free days to discover Darwin and organise your travel. However there is flexibility so we can discuss alternate times.

We rise early and can only accept people who are willing to rise early 6:45am wake up on week days. Saturday and Sunday is sleep in day so usually 8:30am

Some guests treat host like a hotel, expect hotel conditions, are demanding and unproductive which causes a strain to the Helpx community - please keep this in mind to determine if Helpx is suitable for you.

We don`t allow people to stay in our home while we are at work or out. We leave at 7:45am weekdays. Darwin is great for wondering about, laying at the Waterfront Lagoon or Botanic Gardens. Plus we live a 20 minute walk to the museum which is FREE and fantastic!
